Not much there yet, but it's a start.  If we all added our hardware there I reckon it should fill up nicely.

I'm surprised you got Feisty to install at all on a SATA drive.  I had to use Kubuntu Gutsy Tribe-1 because of SATA driver issues with this mainboard, maybe I gave up to quick.

Beating the ATI/AMD proprietary drivers into submisson wasn't easy, there seem to be to much scripts, tools and utilities fighting over the config file.  I ended up doing a: "sudo chmod 444 /etc/X11/xorg.conf" after editing it by hand, we'll see how well that holds up.  So far I've gotten UI1 and UI2 with masking to work.

I have made a wiki page for the Asus M2A-VM, It's not much yet, but I'm hoping other people with this motherboard will expand it a bit with their experience too.

Maybe we should set one up specifically for the problems with the ATI drivers as well?  Probably won't be to hard to come up with a universal xorg.conf template that works on most setups.  If you like I could post mine here for now as an example.

Does anyone know how to add phone lines from providers that are not on the list?  Or even better, is there a way to add my voip provider, as I already have one, to this list?  And save some people the hassle in the future.  I looked through the admin site but couldn't figure it out (I'm not that familiar with LinuxMCE yet), I'm using version 1.1 Beta 2 by the way.  Thanks.

Well here in the UK we can easily record 20+ DVB-T standard digital terrestrial TV channels concurrently while watching 2-3 channels live and or playing a ripped DVD. Our Cores are typically 3Ghz Celeron's with 512mb-1Gb RAM and are typically based on i945 class motherboards. With this kind of level of activity at the core we typically see less than 30% processor usage. Obviously recording 30+ channels concurrently is not a likely scenario in normal domestic usage... but it gives you some metric on the capacity to load up a system.

Hope this helps


Which device(s) do you use for the reception of the DVB-T signal? (If you don't mind my asking)

I had some trouble setting up X the right way as well (ATI chipset), and it seems to me that there are way to many (incompetent) utilities, tools and scripts fighting over the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file.  I ended up doing a "chmod 444" on it after editing it by hand, getting it right for once and for all, but I wouldn't be surprised if I had to restore it from a backup copy again.

Sure, hardly any trouble at all with LMCE.  No idea where this '' network came from tho, I doubt it's really needed.

Code: [Select]
Kernel IP routing table

I've just ran into this one as well, I was just trying out IU2 with masking when it happened.  Ejecting the DVD fixed it for me.  I've switched back to UI1 now where this problem doesn't occur.

Is it UI2 related?  Does it happen every time or just occasionaly or even only with certain media?

Here's my /etc/network/interfaces, I hope it helps.

Code: [Select]
auto lo
        iface lo inet loopback

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
auto eth1
iface eth1 inet static
        netmask eth0

Have you tried moving around with the cursor keys to see if that selects a button?

Shame you ran out of drivespace, you know you could just chuck in a bigger drive.  With a bit of preperation any old IDE drive should do, I upgraded mine to 250G.

I wonder if it's really all that necessary for them to all run the exact same kernel version, but I guess those checks are there for a reason. 

As far as the OS dependencies go, both Xebian and Kubuntu are derived from Debian, so the basics and infra-structure should at least be very similar.  Will probably be great fun to just add Kubuntu to the sources.list in Xebian and watch the sparks fly. ;)

When I get through with playing with my new LinuxMCE test system I could probably build a suitable kernel for this if that would help you guys out a bit.

Excuse me for being a simpleton, but why not just install Xebian and go from there?  Chances are even that the  LMCE binaries (i386) will run under there. 

A network boot would be nice but if you have to flash the bios first that would kind of invalidate the ease of use in my opinion.  Personally I would prefer a solution that works with a softmod so you don't even have to open the case.  And it shouldn't be a problem to have multiple "dashboards" and/or systems installed like XBMC/EvoX/UnleashX/Xebian/Gentoox/etc. (even the original BIOS, if you want to play "live", for what it's worth).

That said, I might fix up the old Xebian install and have a stab at it too.  I never went as far as compiling my own firmware or flash the bios, and it's been a while, but I still have the stuff to build custom softmods (ndure). 

I think, but I'm not entirely sure, that the xbox kernel patch was mainly for providing "fatx" support (for reading/writing native xbox partitions, not really essential for what you want to do with it I reckon.

Either way, good luck and happy hacking.
